DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD!
PROMOTE THE HEALTH OF NEBRASKA’S FORESTS – BUY AND BURN LOCAL FIREWOOD
The emerald ash borer (EAB) was discovered during a site inspection in Omaha’s Pulaski Park on June 6, 2016. Nebraska becomes the 27th state to confirm the presence of EAB, joining neighboring states of Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Colorado.

The Nebraska Dept. of Ag has issued a quarantine prohibiting ash nursery stock from leaving the quarantine area. The quarantine also regulates the movement of hardwood firewood and mulch, ash timber products and green waste material out of Douglas, Sarpy, Cass, Washington and Dodge counties to assist in the prevention of human-assisted spread of the pest into un-infested areas.
